Kaleidotroping along

(cross-posted to the Kaleidotrope weblog)

I’m starting to get some feedback on the most recent issue of Kaleidotrope, and I think contributor Bill Ward’s comments might be my favorite so far:

I’ve just read through my contributor’s copy of the fourth issue of Kaleidotrope and the magazine continues to impress. There’s a healthy dose of surreal scifi and cross-genre slipstream shorts between the covers, and a variety of poetry and prose poems. But it’s the quirky humor of Fred Coppersmith that really comes through in his magazine and makes it different than a lot of other small press cross-genre ‘zines, which take themselves far too seriously. Kaleidotrope, with its eclectic stories and articles (the standout here is a history of the ‘fembot’ in popular culture) and weird little vignettes like faux horoscopes and ironic photography, is a magazine that isn’t scared to have some fun.

Bill’s fun short story, “The Three Wishes of Miles Vander,” appears in the issue, on sale now.

  1. I’m still wending my way through my copy, but so far I’ve quite enjoyed “Paradise,” “Praise For What I Don’t Know” and “Word Count: Negative 1” (which is a real mindfuck).

    But my favorite has to be “My Cthulhu Story.” Is that part of an ongoing series? This needs to be a web comic.

  2. Cool!

    By the way, my copies were waiting in my mailbox when I got back from Australia, so thanks! Hopefully I’ll get the chance to read through it once I get out from under this insane trip-induced backlog of, well, everything.
